In 1984, Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) held its annual meeting in Richmond, British Columbia. Pictured from left to right are board members Hugo Jantz, Leo Driedger, Henry P. Yoder, Bruce Janzen and Florence Driedger. Money is a form of power. With it, a person or organization can fulfill needs and wants. How does God want us to use this power? For decades, Mennonites in North America have pooled some of their wealth for projects such as MCC. Annual gatherings are held to report, seek advice and plan how to use this power.
